Market Scenario


Wheel rims are cylindrical rings that hold the tires in an automobile. The rims ensure proper alignment of the tires and maintain the air pressure inside tubeless tires. Wheel rims need to be strong enough to bear the vehicle weight and withstand forces applied by vehicle operation.


The rims style the outer circular parts of the wheels. Materials such as steel, non-ferrous alloys, aluminum, and magnesium are used to produce rims in sophisticated designs. Alloy wheels are gaining popularity due to their appearance, as well as their low weight as compared to steel wheels. Wheel rims mainly affect the braking system of a vehicle. Wheel rims with larger diameters enable better airflow towards the braking system. Wheel rims are capable of carrying high bending and torsional loads and act as a supporting link to the suspension unit of the vehicle.


Global Automotive Wheel Rims Market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 4% between 2020 and 2026.
